As I was taking down the Christmas tree, the tornado sirens went off. That, of course, made DramaQueen go into hysterics. Then, when I went outside to continue with the de-Christmasing of the porch trees, lights and garland and to watch the skies, it threw her into a tizzy. “Come inside!!!! Come INSIDE Mom!!! Oh my god…is there going to be a tornado? Are we going to be ok!?! Mom! Come! In! Side!” So I went inside, got my camera and went back out. MonkeyBoy came with me. He thought the weather was pretty neat. I took another couple of shots, we started up the porch steps and all of a sudden, a wave of wind and rain hit. It was like someone turned on a switch. We barely missed getting soaked. MB was impressed. DQ was hysterical. We all survived.
